Painting is the best way to play with color. I could spend hours just mixing paints. My experience has mostly been with oils and watercolor; they behave differently but both are compatible with my style of working. I enjoy a loose gestural handling of the brush. I think it’s important to see the human behind the painting in some way. Something happens between receiving information through the eye, transmitting it to the brain and then out of the paintbrush that I like to leave exposed.

I am always drawn to the organic lines within red cabbage.

Oil painting of my favorite towels. I love the way fabric hangs and the shadow it casts on the wall.
